The externals-1953518744.us-east-1.elb.amazonaws.com redirect is on your computer because you accidentally installed a browser hijacker.

A browser hijacker is a form of malware designed to hijack your web browser’s settings and force a redirect, not to your default location but rather to a chosen location by the malware. This is almost always because the developers of such hijackers are looking to profit in one way or another, but trying to work out who is behind the hijackers is not always as straightforward as it may seem. For instance, it’s not necessarily Amazon making this particular hijacker that is redirecting to something potentially Amazon-related.

You can often remove browser hijacker infections by entering the browser settings and removing the extension that has been installed to support them. However, we advise to run an antimalwars scan to make sure the threat is properly removed from the computer. Otherwise, there is a chance of it coming back.

amazonaws.com

The amazonaws.com domain is a real domain that gets lots of web traffic. That’s because it’s actually associated with the real Amazon website and will redirect to it if you were to visit. But since so many third-party sellers are on Amazon, we aren’t able to tell if Amazon is behind this threat or just one of its sellers.
